At around 2:40am Sunday September 21, 2008 the above photographed victim was befriended by two males at a park in Kingston, pretending to help “her” out. While sitting at a bus stop initially near the park, the two males who were passing by presented themselves as keeping her company, around some time after the men offered to keep her warm, as it turned out this was a front to launch their planned assault on the victim.
The victim who is a pre-operative transsexual presents as a woman so the men believing the victim was female attempted to rape her.
She fought vigorously to be free of her attackers, however not before sustaining the injuries photographed where a knife was used to slash her throat, they tried to strangle her and ripped her blouse and pants off, It was at this juncture that upon realising she was a “he” they inflicted the slashing.
The security guards on the premises nearby were not very helpful, when she tried to seek help partially nude, after escaping her attackers, who by this time made off with her cash amounting to $JA9000.00, a cell phone and other personal effects, one guard apparently attempted to pull his firearm and told her to get away.
It was a commercial sex worker on the strip who saw her and assisted her by calling the police. They arrived and took her to the hospital and instructed her to file a report after getting medical attention.
She subsequently contacted JFLAG representatives who arrived at the hospital to her aid.
